Meet Google Allo – A Smart Messaging App
Features of Google Allo
Google is leveraging its machine learning technology in Allo, which brings rich set of features to the messaging app.
Google Assistant is the power house behind Allo. You can answers to your questions, find information, and get things done without having to leave your conversation. You can chat one-on-one with the assistant, or call on Google in a group chat with friends. Either way, you no longer have to jump between apps to do things like book a dinner reservation with friends, get up-to-date sports scores, settle a bet, or play a game. The assistant in Allo lets you bring things like Search, Maps, YouTube and Translate to all your conversations, so that you and your friends can use Google together.
Smart Reply feature is built into Allo which lets you respond to messages without typing a single word. The beauty of this feature is that it learns over time from you and will show suggestions in your style. For example, it will learn whether you’re more of a “haha” vs. “lol” kind of person. The more you use Allo, you will show more suggestions in your style. It works with photos too, provides intelligent suggestions related to the content of the photo. It responds to text and photos to help you keep the conversation going. If your friend sends you a photo of sky diving, for example, you may see Smart Reply suggestions like “So brave!” or “How exciting!” etc.
Get creative with the photos you send by doodling on them.
No more TYPING IN ALL CAPS to get your point across. Say it louder or quieter by changing the size of your text with a quick swipe.
Say what you really mean with exclusive stickers designed by independent artists and studios from around the world.
Chat privately with end-to-end encryption. Control how long your messages stick around with expiring chats. Use private notifications to hide your chats from shoulder surfers.
Allo uses your phone number similar to WhatsApp.
The app will be available later this year and you can pre-Register for Google Allo on playstore right now to get notified when the app is released.
